It’s a truth universally acknowledged that the golden geese of music were laying 24K cackleberries during one particular decade: the ‘90s, which had it all in bucket(hat)s. Today we look at the best of punk and pop-punk!

Turns out we very much did have the time to listen to Billie Joe Armstrong whine – hours upon hours of it in fact, along with his pop-punk and straight-down-the-alley punk peers Bikini Kill (“Rebel girl, you are the queen of my world!”), NOFX (“It’s not the right time to be sober, now the idiots have taken over!”), Blink-182 (“Well I guess this is growing up!”) No Doubt (“That’s all that you’ll let me be!”), The Offspring (“Un, dos, tres, quatro, cinco, cinco, seis!”), and pantsloads more.

Check out our fave three tracks below, as well as a playlist of all the greats.
